Duplicate listing of Cafe Restaurant Olive

This entry should be combined with the other listing. It's an average café-ristorante serving a wide range of Italian food at a reasonable price. Pizzas offer the best value but judging by other reviews, they're not great.

The corner is loud but sunny. The Olive is only one short half-block from West Berlin's main drag, the "Ku-damm." My wife and I saw down at a sunny table. A woman came out of the restaurant and stood before us and said "What?" Which was what I started to think but instead said that we actually wanted to eat... More

Sitting outside was pleasant enough although it's on a busy junction. The inside was nothing special and did not strike me as particularly homely or "Italian". I'd rank this place as a café rather than a ristorante. I opened with bruschetta which was passable, and followed it with scaloppine ai funghi trifolati (which should have been veal with wild mushrooms)... More

we have been several times in this restaurant,but owner in case of making a business wants that everybody next to the table order a one meal,but maybe I want to share a pizza with my daughter which is impossible there. that's why owner asks us to leave a restaurant as we dont want to order a separate meal. very horrible...

combing the neighbourhood for dinner, we came upon this place which was booked full but had one table to spare, which we snatched and came to regret. it was about half an hour after we sat that we were served with a basket of very dried bread. close to an hour later, we were served our meal - tomato soup,...

We ate at this and while it was OK, it could do better. We preferred the Greek restaurant around the corner - better service and nicer food!

I ate here a couple of times during my stay in Berlin. I was staying at the hotel across the road so it was in a very good location for me, it is also close to a lot of great shopping. The vibe of the restaurant was very nice and welcoming. It is beautiful outside so we chose to sit... More

I have to admit, we were somewhat put off visiting this restaurant due to the many bad reviews that it has received. However, with me having fallen down some stairs and sustaining an injury to my leg before our holiday, my fiance and I were somewhat limited when it came to going out for a meal for the first couple...

We walked to this restaurant for an early dinner. It wasn't crowded at all. We each ordered a drink and a pizza to share. Took forever to get our drinks and even longer for the pizza. I can't imagine a reason for the delay since there were only a couple other tables and they had already been served. Our pizza... More

It was our the first day to take breakfast in Berline. This restaurant was the closest. Good and friendly service and food was ready in 15 minutes. We enjoyed our food but not our bill. Two cups of capuchino, one omlette, aplle pie and tiramissu cost 30 Euros we did not get upset because it was the first holiday day... More
